About Natalie

We have been coming to Maui for over 15 years, and have always been attracted to Kaanapali, especially this location. We feel a sense of serenity every time we visit Maui and have been blessed to enjoy Honua Kai and allow others to enjoy our magical place.

Natalie purchased this condo in 2013

Why Natalie chose Maui

Honua Kai is located in one of our most favorite spots in Hawaii. Our studio offers a great location in the primary building, on the 3rd floor, with serene views of the grounds, pool, beach, ocean and Lanai. We are meticulous about our home, and our guests will not be disappointed with the quality, appointments and service!

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy a serene vacation at Maui's newest most luxurious resort... Honua Kai: 'Honua' means planet earth or stable ground; 'Kai' is the South Pacific Ocean as seen from the shores of Kaanapali disappearing beyond the horizon, past Molokai and Lanai, and into what ancient Hawaiians called the 'Great Sea of Eternity. The sea, sand and gentle warm breezes welcome you, and the Aloha spirit abounds you.

Honua Kai has all the amenities of a new 5-star hotel combined with the comfort of a private residence. no wonder HONUA KAI RESORT & SPA has become the hottest place for travelers. The 38 acres of lush, landscaped grounds containing both tranquil areas and also an expansive aquatic playground is rated as one of the top beachfront luxury resorts in Maui.

From the moment you arrive, there is a seamless indoor outdoor living, as seen in the lobby area that opens up to the beautiful lush landscaping and stunning views.

Honua Kai caters to so many with the many amenities: an infinity-edge pool with cabanas, aqua loungers, pool side beverage and food service, hot tubs, swim-under waterfalls, ‘lazy river’, child’s pool area with sand bottom and water slide, activity center with rentals, day and night child care (ages 3+), 10 outdoor Viking gas grills areas and on site gourmet market and Duke's restaurant.

We fell in love with this place because of the location, views, serenity, and amenities. We love the studio as it offers a cozy yet roomy space. We love the view from the sitting area and Lanai -- resort, tiki torches, pool, ocean, sunsets, lanai and the palm trees swaying in the breeze.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jerry and I just arrived home from Hawaii on Wednesday. After Maui we island hopped to the big island and Kauai.



Our accommodations on both islands couldn't compare with your condo.

We were 100% satisfied from start to finish. Rick met us and showed us around and was good enough to come right away the next morning to fix the safe which we had messed up. The location was perfect and we loved the view from the lanai. The unit was beautiful, well maintained and very clean.



It was all the little things that we really appreciated, the professional hairdryer, a big bonus. The toiletries, a fully equipped kitchen, nice bed linens, comfortable bed and good mattress cover, which wasn't noticed until we stripped the bed when leaving.



It was great having grocery bags, beach towels, chairs and boogey boards.

Our daughter and family were in another unit on the ground floor with our 2 very young(11 months and 3 years) grand daughters. The location was so perfect that we literally didn't have to leave the grounds unless we really wanted to, beach in the morning, pool in the afternoon and Dukes right on the grounds.



We were really sad to leave and are hoping to return possibly next year.

Wonderful Island Experience.

  • 4 of 5

The communication leading up to our stay was very good. The Studio was exactly what we expected and we were very impressed with how clean and welcoming it was. We were pleased to have the Beach equipment to enjoy during our stay.

Some of our favorite things to do during our trip was to visit the Blow Hole, road to Hanna, visit to the Crater and of course explore all the different beaches each with their own beauty.

We highly recommend the Mala restaurant and we also had a good time at the Maui Brewery.

I highly recommend this property and would definitely return if we come back to Maui.

Thank you Natalie for your lovely condo.

Best

Gerry and Mario from Vancouver BC.

Property has it all!

  • 5 of 5

Condo is in great condition. Has a the fixings you need for comforts away from home. Has beach chairs & Towels, snorkling gear, access to work out facility, spa and onsite Dukes Restaurant (which is convenient when you just want to walk to an eating establishment). The pools and chairs are all service well, the only things was the hot tubs were (out of service) not a good thing for night use. Maria and Candice are easy to contact, should you need assistance. I would return to this condo, the only thing is I prefer to be at a place that's less crowded. This is a resort yes, though I'd prefer a time to go when it's not so busy. Other than that, this is an excellent place to stay in Kaanapali.

Honua Kai is very well manicured, and this condo was really nice, with beach chairs and boogie boaards.

Fabulous studio in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent 8 days at this condo. Everything was fantastic! My pre-arrival emails with Natalie were efficient and informative. When we arrived, they have a private concierge service that meets you at the resort and shows you to your room. She will also book excursions if you want, or even just give you a lot of recommendations. We worked with Candice, and she was so nice and knowledgeable! The studio itself is very well kept, and looks exactly like the pictures! We loved having the full kitchen and lanai looking out at the ocean. The condo has beach chairs (if you want to go to the beach) and 4 beach towels. The pools at the Honua Kai are very nice with lots of lounge chairs. We actually spent most of our time while at the resort on their beach---there is a huge coral reef right off the beach, and we would snorkel there daily---so many fish and we even saw some turtles! The snorkeling right off our beach was actually better than snorkeling at Molokini crater! The crater was a cool experience, but got very crowded, and really we saw more fish just right off the beach! We ate at Duke's restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner----the food was very good and very convenient, too, if you just need a quick bite. There is also a paved "beachwalk" that goes from our resort all the way down past the other hotels to they hyatt (almost 6 miles roundtrip---great for early morning runs). We also walked down and tried out some other beaches, and the one in front of Honua Kai was our favorite! We loved our first vacation to Maui and when we return, we will definitely try and stay in this Studio again---it exceeded our expectations! I highly recommend this place to everyone!!

Comfortable studio

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week at this condo. Very clean and nice decor. It had everything we needed for beach as well as kitchen utensils. The resort has really nice pools and the gem of this resort was the beach. Great swimming and an expansive walkway to stroll along the coast.

We were met by Candice who showed us to the condo and answered all our questions. We would recommend this condo for couples.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Relatively new property; very clean; pictures posted are accurate reflections of reality; property management (Natalie/Candice/Maria) were all very friendly and helpful; worth the price of admission.
